Also known as St. John’s wort, Hypericum has been shown to help balance mood changes, encourage feelings of calmness, and even support healthy sleeping patterns.* Each capsule contains 0.6% Hypercin, one of the active pigments in St. John's wort, which may have the ability to naturally support the production of serotonin. As a result, St. John’s wort may be beneficial in naturally providing the balance needed to help maintain a positive mood.*
The ancient Greeks and Romans believed St. John's Wort could treat many ailments, including sciatica and poisonous reptile bites as well as warded against evil spirits. They placed sprigs of the plant on statues of their Gods. In fact, the genus name Hypericum is from Greek and means "over an apparition" as the herb was once considered odiferous enough to cause evil spirits to depart.
